'Biggest snake in football' - Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Sol Campbell snub
By Amir Mir
Sol Campbell has been snubbed by Tottenham for their final match at White Hart Lane – and fans on Twitter have agreed with the decision.
The Times reported that the former Arsenal defender is a notable absentee from a list of ex-players invited to celebrate the club saying goodbye to the Lane.
Spurs are set to play their final match at their old home against Manchester United on May 14, with fans set to give the stadium an emotional send-off.
Campbell is seen as a hate figure at Tottenham after he moved to their rivals Arsenal on a free transfer in 2001.
He came through the ranks at White Hart Lane when he was a youngster, but made a very unpopular move despite going on to win two Premier League titles under Arsene Wenger.

One fan stated that Campbell is the biggest snake in football, therefore, he shouldn’t get an invite by the club.
It isn’t a surprise to see that supporters felt that the decision to not invite him to the game was a correct one.
While another fan hit out at the media for thinking it is a shock that Spurs have snubbed one of their ex-players.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Centre-back Campbell represented Tottenham on 258 occasions, scoring ten goals during his time at the club.
Aside from Arsenal, he also played for Portsmouth, Newcastle and a one-game appearance for Notts County.
Added to that, he earned 73 England caps playing 18 of those matches at either World Cups or European finals.
